Fallen Kingdom

Hey, so it’s almost time for Fallen Kingdom (sequel to Fallen Prince and second in the Fallen Trilogy) to be released! April 11th is the scheduled date, and I can happily say that we are on schedule. Yay! Here’s a pic of the cover to let you know what you’re in for…

Pretty nifty, huh? It’s sort of a secret what the colored circle and “animal” inside of it represent, but… read the first and second book and you might be able to guess. If not, by the time you read book three, you’ll definately have it.

While you’re here, please check out the trailer for Fallen Kingdom, if only to hear the cool song…

Another big theme song for the second book would be… Skip the Charades by Cold War Kids, but I’ll make you go look that up yourself. I’ll have the whole playlist for Fallen Kingdom up on my site in time for the release. To tide you over, here’s somewhat how I invision Cyric (one of the main characters of the Fallen Trilogy) to appear…

I know, I know, you’re wondering: why is he playing a guitar? Why is he singing? Does he play a guitar in the book? Does he sing? I thought it was a high fantasy (aka, no electric guitars/microphones). Why couldn’t you just find a normal picture of this dude?

The answers to these questions are simple. First off, no, Cyric, ahem, does not and never would sing. He just… doesn’t do that. He’s Cyric Dracla; he doesn’t sing. Second, yes it is a high fantasy*, so no, there are no electric guitars in the book.

And even if there were, Cyric would not know how to play them.

The reason these pictures are of a singing Gavin Rossdale (that’s the lead singer for Bush, for anyone who doesn’t know) is because Cyric only looks like Gavin Rossdale, when Gavin Rossdale is singing… this one specific time he sang… in 1999… at woodstock… Otherwise, he doesn’t really resemble him. Hence: a singing Cyric. But the hair’s perfect, so yay!

If you’d like to get an idea of what Ellia Solidor looks like (the other main character from the Fallen Trilogy) please watch this youtube video.

Ellia definately only resembles this girl (Catherine Pierce of The Pierces) when she’s singing, but hey, this is one of Cyric and Ellia’s theme songs, so it works. :)
I hope you’ve enjoyed a taste of Fallen Kingdom. It will be available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords 4.11.12 for 99 cents. Make sure to pick up a copy and let me know what you thought.
* high fantasy means sword and sorcery/alternate world sort of fantasy. Think “Lord of the Rings” or “Narnia”
